St Emilie’s Parish 2014 Sacramental Program for 1st Holy Communion
I am writing to you with details of the 2014 Sacramental Program at St Emilie’s Catholic Church.
As you are aware St Emilie’s Sacramental Program is Family Focused, Parish Based and School supported. As a Parish, we are very committed to supporting your family in your child’s faith journey and we feel privileged in assisting you and your child with the preparation for the Sacrament of 1st Holy Communion
For children and parents involved in the 1st Holy Communion Program, the following commitment is required:
- completion of a Sacramental Program Enrolment Form
- attendance at a Commitment Mass
- attendance at the Parent and Child Workshop
Sacramental Program Enrolment Forms will be available for collection from the table in the church foyer from Saturday 15th February at the 6.30pm Mass. Enrolment Forms for 1st Holy Communion are Blue. Completed forms can be left in the return tray for forms which is also located on the table in the church foyer.
Families are also being asked to choose which Commitment Mass they will attend in March. A schedule of Mass times is also on the table in the Foyer so please choose which mass you will be attending and fill in your family name in the appropriate slot.
